    I can see Poe taking him under his wing and helping achieve the skills to match his heart & courage.

    I think he was left in a coma for a reason.

    He was able to buck his programming as a Stormtrooper. He was a top performer in his cohort. There are great things trapped inside our hero.

    I think he will be a Jedi by The end of the trilogy.

    I think he'll end up leading some sort of strike force. He'll be involved in the military side of the story, kind of like Han and Co. assaulting the bunker in ROTJ.

    He'll be awoken by true love's kiss by either Rey or Poe. If that isn't what happens, I will demand my money back :p

    I'm hoping he'll become a high ranking mofo in the Resistance, or even the Republic. He knows the enemy from the inside, and he seemed extremely at ease constructing battleplans alongside the highest ranking members of the Resistance.

    He'll also become even bigger bros for life with Poe Dameron, of course. Kind of like 22 Jump street but Star Warsified.

    I would love to see two very different Jedi story arcs, Rey as the normal Luke taught Jedi who mostly uses the force. And Finn, the unorthodox but highly skilled warrior Jedi

    Obviously some romance will develop between him and Rey. I definitely want his friendship with Poe expanded upon as their chemistry together was way better than his with Rey

    What kind of weapon you think he will have in the next episode? I mean he had a blaster and lightsaber in episode 7. Will he go back to blaster or will they give him his own type of weapon.

    "Thier" [face_laugh]

    I also don't think he will become a jedi, and I don't want so. I think he will be something like a general in VIII and will help the resistence to destroy the First Order.

    I personally think he won't become a Jedi because I just don't think he has the same connection to the force that Rey has. If I was to move forward with his character I would place him in a more militaristic position like some of you guys are suggesting, and have him develop his relationship with Poe.

    Agree 101%. I hope VIII to be placed a couple of years after VII, then we would have a jedi Rey and two war brothers, Finn and Poe.

    I'm concerned about Finn's coma. Will he be the same Finn when he wakes up. Will he remember joining the resistance or will he remember his programming.

    Don't forget, Finn was also motivated by Fear. And Fear is the path to the dark side.

    Yeah, going to be interesting what they do with his character in episode 8 since he's in a coma. Will Finn still be in it during the movie or will they use it as an excuse to make a novel or book about him snapping out of it before hand.

    Honestly, I think his role will be a more Luke ESB role in the trilogy in terms of combat. Part time blaster, and handy with a lightsaber. I have a feeling Rey will be more the "heir to the Jedi" and Finn more the "heart of the Jedi". If he's force sensitive at all (either way is fine, his character is awesome). I would like to see Rey be the one it comes easy to, but have more trouble with being a leader and facing her emotions. Finn can be the one who has to work harder to utilize the force, but is capable in his own way.

    Yeah I probably wont buy any of the new books now. Was thinking of giving them a chance,because I thought they would be canon like the movies and shows. Doesn't appear that way. Better just sticking with the movies and enjoying the characters that way.

    So he is in a coma.. I really hope he stays on the light side as I fear once he wakes up his brainwashing would be rebooted and he will be baddie again...
